Top customer reviews
If you did not like the first plan it produced you can re-generate it and it comes up with a different selection. You can lock in certain plant sections and exclude plants from others as required before each re-generation until you achieve what you want. This is a good feature.
I would say the only downside is that the number of plants available for suggestion may be a little limited, but I reckon the plan produced is ideal for the novice. The plans I produced surprisingly did not contain some of the more common plants you find in the garden (eg Lupins, delphiniums, foxgloves but this may be because of the local conditions I entered). A more experienced gardener could use the printed plan and put in other plants, of similar characteristics to those suggested, of their choice from a plant finder site such as the one on the RHS website.
Overall, I would say that this is a very useful tool for garden border design. By drawing the general plan with some guidelines and suggestions is a great start.
